Our daughter Sam is 13 and although she likes her red hair, like all young teen girls, she wishes she could change her hair color like she changes nail polish. Last summer as a reward for being on A honor roll all year we allowed her to get a pink streak in her hair. It set me back about $30!
This year after coloring the ends of her bangs with black permanent marker she decided she wanted black tips. Her grandmother offered to take her to the hair dressers but, I thought we could do a decent dye job with a black root touch up kit. I spent $5.88 on the bottle and I think it looks cool! (She made all A Honor Roll and perfect attendance this year!)
I wound up getting dye all over her neck because of the ginormous gloves, that come in the package. I don’t think they realize that 5′ tall people don’t have hands that fit into one size fits all gloves!
All the black will probably fade out by the time she heads back to school in early August. And then she will have to wait around until next summer to have another “hair raising adventure”. I just couldn’t pass up that opportunity for a pun.
